    This is really not a first vote. This is the results of the biggest government bribe in American history. This also shown how week the democrats SINators really are. Votes for hire.

  5. Retirement in the making?

    Obviously, the time in office has taken its toll on his mind. Maybe he should think about retiring.

    Reid took a few minutes before the vote to actually read a little garbage from the bill and then voted no after he saw some of the disastorus legislation.

    A Freudian slip I presume – Too bad he did'nt stick with the no vote – It might have given him some credability instead of selling out to the Insurance & Pharma Industry with this rediculous Mandated policy.
    If they go ahead without a Viable Public Option, an Early Medicare Buy in and , or drug reimportation they will loose a huge amount of Indeendent and the youger vote. They will have betrayed us for the last time, and will lose the majority bigger then they did in 94.

    What a travisty and betrayal of the public trust.

    He may be the most corrupt Senator of all time, and it will be good to see him voted out. Hopefully the loons on the left will fight in the conference and kill the bill. There's always the prayer for one of the Senator's not being able to make the vote. Anything to stop this corrupt administration. Bribes, payoffs, ignoring the constitution....that's the change we are being sold. TAX CHEATS UNITE if this POS is jammed thru.

    accident or joke by an idiot, I would bet on joke by idiot. Reid is a fool and he will learn just how much a fool when we vote him out and make obama a one term jerk. Stop the bleeding, vote out the bums.

    Reid knows this bill is a piece of crapola,and his mental awareness spoke the truth the first time. He should have stayed with NO.

    Freudian slip?

    This is a first class example of a Freudian Slip...in his subconsciuos mind Harry Reid knows this whoe thing is WRONG WRONG WRONG.

    This man shows incredibly weakness of character in his struggle for power. He is incredibly corrupt in his effort to seem decent and good.

    Whatever makes him tick is most likely the timing mechanism of his own self destruction.

    Deep down, this corrupt, morally bankrupt man may actaully be trying to find personal salvation by hitting bottom as fast and as hard as possible. In this regard, he is succeeding.

    Oops, Reid almost did something intelligent. Alas, he corrected himself and continued down the road to stupidity.

    Remember this Nevada when you boot him out in November.

    Harry Reid is a complete moron and an embarrassment to the country. So much for making history. Well played Harry.

    Harry Christmas for the Democrat Congress to pass a bill to bankcrupt America! Harry Reid is an idiot and socialist. The Democrat Congress is coming to the end of 2010 election, thanks to Harry and Obama.

    Actually, 4 years from now, when he is running for office again, he will be able to pull a John Kerry and claim to have voted both for and against the bill, depending on which audience he is talking to.

    Ah, if only ALL of our illustrious leaders would vote honestly and with the good of the constituents in the nation in mind rather than only looking forward to their next re-election.

    Our Congress is the best that money, greed and power can buy.
